is the first thing on tap because of the expiration of the tax cuts and the sequester. cbs news, "new york times" poll from late october found that 64% of respondents want to see a combination of federal spending cuts and taxes being raised to reduce the deficit. some sort of balanced solution as i was talking about earlier in the show. so how much more leading does the president have to do with the public on that versus congress? >> well, i think you know, people are talking about this election being a status quo election. in my mind, it is about middle ground, middle class and moderation. >> jennifer: interesting. >> so there's so many polling results that show people are looking for a middle ground. and they want -- i think obama to lead and to take the hatfields and the mccoys and you know, bring them together and make this happen. and so while -- while you know, they want to compromise, someone has to make that happen. he can lead people to a compromise. >> jennifer: so the polling results demonstrate that he has

. with all of this news, cbs is calling new hampshire for president obama. bill fletcher, your reflections at this moment. >> is the question is about drawing the line. i think it is about strategy. we talk a lot about drawing lines. we talked about disagreements with different mainstream politicians. politics is about strategy, so it is not a question about if obama has nine done -- not done x, y, and z, the question is what are we capable of doing? otherwise this becomes a complete abstraction, and going back to something laura says, i do not know people who put all their time into the electoral politics. i know very few people to sink all of their energy into it. what i do know is a lot of people who stay away from the discussion of a long term electra roles strategy -- electorial strategy, or they jump in, thinking that is a time to wave the flag and express moral outrage with all kinds of capital as politicians, rather than thinking what are the steps we have to take to actually win power? how do we build a movement that has an electoral arm that and dances in -- that advances the peo

had a conversation with john dickerson of cbs news. he said to you before the last presidential debate he thought maybe the american people were quietly cooking something up, something we don't know about. you wrote, i think they are. and i think it's this. a romney win. explain that. >> well, i just got a feeling and i have had it for a little while that something is going on out there. maybe the best way to explain it to myself in a way in the last 24 hours has been all the data i get, all the anecdotes and one distinguished thing about this campaign and unusual thing is we have all been so overwhelmed by data, battleground polls. national polls, local weighted polls. in a way my mind has gone back to let's see what the humans are saying. all i get is a sense that the republican base, its many constituent parts. maybe has in the past 10 days or few weeks started to come together again and they are going to come out. i also see, this is from polls, the number of independents who appear to be breaking for romney. you talk to democrats who are feeling sympathetic, i'm just thinking some
tell you this 13 minutes ago cbs news called the state of virginia for obama. we haven't done that and we're not making that call. we can't -- but what i'm saying is, is it that that put him over the top on the concession or was he really just writing the concession speech. i don't think in the long run time of history that's going to matter. because he's going to step to the polls and concede. martha is with us from fox news. we've been looking at the exiting polling and we've learned a lot. >> we have learned a lot. we also saw the flip in the national vote as well in the past few minutes and it's become a much more decisive matter in the poll. when you look at this across the poll. the economy is what it boils down to. and what happened it appears is that voters went to the polls and they said you know what we're going to give president obama another chance. the gulp that was supposed to exist because of mitt romney's businessman and turning around the olympics did not add up in people's minds to the simple question of do i want to stick with this guy or give this guy a cha

of the incident itself. let's turn to another issue. that is avoiding war. israeli newspaper and a cbs local news department reporting that valerie jarrett has been actually talking with iranians. the white house knocked that down. rumors persist. >> well, there are lots of partners. photos -- people i've talked to say that they have not been leading in the delegation anywhere, but as we discussed before the election, i think one can expect how white house push very early and very intensively to get talks going, whether or not they are bilateral talks, 1- someone, or whether they involve the p-5, there will be talks in an effort to get a deal lou: the iranians are going to begin their exercises, drills, air defense drills over the weekend. >> i think this is in part for domestic political consumption to show that they are standing up to the united states and israel. in part it is intended to intimidate the obama administration, but look. efforts to shoot down on an aerial vehicles, the drills, the continued progress of the iranian of their weapons program of go to show that they are not being slo
